I love rubarb, but we have it only in summer here in Finland.
And I made a few smoothies last summer of it.

Thanks, this is how I can use up my frozen rhubarb instead of making a pie or cobbler. Sounds really refreshing.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Ah!!! Rhubarb! Actually a VEGETABLE is low in calories (26 calories per 1 cup of diced rhubarb) and carbs (6 grams), high in fibre and is also a good source of magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Calcium, Potassium and Manganese.

So, I made a smoothie with rhubarb today after my workout. There is a TON of variations you could make using rhubarb as a base ingredient to help fill you up (and avoid more calorie dense foods).

Smoothie Base:

1/2 - 1 cup rhubarb (frozen, diced preferrably)
1/2 cup milk (almond milk, cow milk, hemp milk, etc)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt

Add Ins (add as many or as few as you like)
handful of berries
1/2 banana
whey protein
Nut butter
flax seed
cacao
fresh spinach
fresh ginger
coconut

Try to use frozen fruits. Makes a nice thick smoothie.


ENJOY!!!
